Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

The paper (30 point) is the second work placement for BE(Hons) students and is typically undertaken during the summer at the end of the third year of the BE(Hons) degree. It is compulsory for all students who are concurrently taking the Diploma in Engineering Professional Practice.

The paper begins with a week-long boot camp, held at the university, before students embark on their various work placements. After completing the work placements, students and work placement supervisors will be invited to the university for an afternoon and evening event to reflect and further strengthen ties between students, industry partners and university academics.

Placements are secured with the assistance of WIL Coordinators, and students are usually paid during the work placement. The final grade is based on assessment items that evidence the professional skills and learning the students are developing. The assessment also includes student work performance evaluation.
